2017 GGTC Training Camp

Get ready for GGTC's new training camp, formally Wildflower Training Weekend. Because of the demise of the infamous and historical Wildflower Triathlon we have moved our location and target race to the Monte Rio Triathlon.


This training weekend is a long-standing GGTC tradition nearly as old as the club itself.A little background: in the Spring of 1992 we had about a dozen members in the Redonda Vista campground where the GGTC would camp on race weekend. Coach Duane Franks remembers “moving two picnic tables together so it could hold our ‘large’ gathering. We called it our ‘secret training weekend.’”


While we couldn't find a place directly on a racecourse like we did at Wildflower, we found a place in between Monte Rio and Santa Rosa Ironman races. The good news is, they have filtered water!


Be prepared to train, learn, socialize, compete, and enjoy a weekend of triathlon and fun!


Our usual shenanigans will be had, in addition to some new ones: Beer Mile, Volleyball tournament, massages, yoga or strength class, guest speakers, and more! The venue also has a fire pit, 2 recreational heated pools, basketball courts, and amazing trails!


This will be a training camp for all levels of athletes and a great time to meet new people and make new friends! We will likely get a chance to preview Monte Rio (Sprint/Olympic) and maybe even Santa Rosa (70.3 / 140.6)!!


Meals are provided Saturday-Sunday morning, and everyone will be in assigned cabins. Please reach out to Liz Davis with any questions
